31 Mar, 2021 by  Vishal Modi

I'm 45 yrs and wanted to decide between a term insurance and a Jeevan Anand/umang endowment policy. Would you point out the benefits and issues with both please?

I have 2 kids around 13 and 17yrs.

Also, whether the above mentioned policies can be taken as tax planning for employer employee insurance?

Dear Mr Modi

You are making a wrong comparison , both have different objective .

Term insurance is for high risk cover on low price .

At your age , you should take a sum assured of Rs 1 crore for next 20 years by paying an annual premium of Rs 20000 . In case of your death , your family will get Rs 1 crore . You can also add accident cover and critical illness cover by adding approx Rs 6000 . Please note there is no survival benefit in Term Insurance .

Whereas jeevan Anand and jeevan umang should be taken for retirement planning .

Jeevan Anand would offer you a lum sum amount on maturity and whole life cover

Jeevan umang

Offer regular income till you live alongwith lifecover .

Term is a absolutely must and rest of the money can be used for jeevan Anand.

Best wishes
